The topic of the media is much too broad to investigate. You need to narrow down your research to a specific peice of media for example men's/women's magazines or advertisements and a specific topic of media. When I did my coursework I faced the same problem, I was looking at attitudes to women in magazines but even that was too broad. I narrowed it down even further to sanitary towel advertisements and selected a few throughout the decades to see if attitudes had changed. I analysed language in all texts (I think I had around 7/8 from the 1930s to 2015) looking for anything that indicated negative attitudes.
